Alastair Campbell, Tony Blair's former spin doctor, has accused Damian McBride of breaking the law by leaking the content of confidential documents from government computers, raising the possibility of a police investigation, according to the Sunday Times (£).
Mr Campbell branded McBride, who was Gordon Brown’s spin doctor, a “shyster” and said he “has admitted not just to venality but criminality”.
Mr Campbell said: “I think the other thing that people should be aware of is he [McBride] has admitted to criminal offences in this,”
